Hamas: We reject the idea of dissolving the ministry of prisoners.

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Senior Hamas official Hasan Yousuf said that because of national considerations, his Movement rejects the proposal to dissolve the Palestinian ministry of prisoners’ affairs.

In remarks to Al-Quds satellite channel on Thursday, Yousuf stated that there were disagreements over the ministries of foreign affairs, awqaf and prisoners.

According to informed sources, Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas’ insistence on keeping his current ministers of foreign affairs and awqaf in their posts, and his intention to replace the ministry of prisoners with an independent committee delayed the announcement of the interim unity government.
